Undesirable Jobs- Now Hiring

Work - (werk) 1. A four letter word that sent Maynard G. Krebbs into hysterical fits; 2. To toil or labor to make a buck. 3. A place that pays one the bucks.

Job - (job) 1. A negligent husband in the Bible who stood by and let his wife be assaulted; 2. One of a member of the family of the man responsible for iMAcs; 3. A task to be performed; 4. With "a," what you call what you do to make a buck.

I have seen snippets of a couple of cable TV programs about difficult jobs. One was about The World's Most Dangerous Jobs. That program followed the exploits of the men who catch Alaskan King Crabs, as well as the men who fight oil rig fires. Another show's slant was on The World's Dirtiest Jobs. This show featured, for example, men who clean the sewers beneath major cities.

I have decided that I will not be sending resumes to any of those outfits featured on those two programs.

I started thinking about other jobs out there that might be a little less than desirable. Coming up with a list of these jobs turned out to be a little more difficult than I thought. (Well finding graphics on the subject was the most difficult part.)

The first that came to mind wouldn't be a desirable job for me - I don't have a strong stomach! It pays good. Is anyone out there interested in being a taster for a glass fruit manufacturer?

Here's a job that has a higher than normal turnover rate: a security guard for Paris Hilton's chastity.

Like photography? A certain rag is looking for Paparazzi photogs to be assigned to follow Rosie O'Donnell.

Ladies, have you ever thought about being a model for The Hairclub For Men? Your job would be to assist men to decide whether they would look better with toupees, hair transplants, or weaves. (See pic.)

How would you like to work in England? They are looking for stone movers to reset Stonehenge for Daylight Savings Time. Great pay for just two days of work a year.

Food suppliers for fine Western restaurants are looking for a few brave people to procure fresh rocky mountain oysters.

Wanted: Several positions for Animal Husbandry Experts in New Zealand to work on large sheep ranch. - Positions filled.

A former high ranking U.S. official is looking for chunky female to purchase fine cigars which will then be stored in unique humidor.
Call 1-800-GOB-UBBA.

There you have it, just a few of those less than desirable jobs available out there. You just have to know where to look. As always, I am more than happy to provide this service and information.

What? There are no anxious applicants for any of these positions?

I wathch "Dirty Jobs", too and I'm thankful to be an ordinary desk jockey. Although, I think being a palentologist would be a lot of fun.

Hale McKay said...


Paleontology, I think would be rather boring digging and brushing rocks looking for fossils all day long.

Then again, actually finding the bones of a T-Rex or some other other dinosaur would be rewarding.

I would have applied for a few of those but my application to do animal husbandry at a new zealand sheep ranch came through. Good knowing you buddy! WOO HOO!

Hale McKay said...

LOL Blue!

Have fun, ewe!
